React Native Animated Loader

Read more about this package here.

downloads npm-version github-tag license

A React Native Loader Component which uses Airbnb's Lottie for beautiful loader animations.

     

Prerequisites

Using React Native CLI

This library uses lottie-react-native to render loader animations. Therefore this library need to be installed and linked to your project before installing this package.

Follow the official instruction and linking guide here.

Using Expo

No need to do anything specific, just install the package itself. Expo already has Lottie library API available and it will take care of the rest.

Install

yarn add react-native-animated-loader

or

npm install react-native-animated-loader --save

Usage

Class Component

import React from 'react';
import { StyleSheet,Text } from 'react-native';
import AnimatedLoader from "react-native-animated-loader";

export default class Loader extends React.Component {
  constructor(props) {
    super(props);
    this.state = { visible: false };
  }

  componentDidMount() {
    setInterval(() => {
      this.setState({
        visible: !this.state.visible
      });
    }, 2000);
  }

  render() {
    const { visible } = this.state;
    return (
      <AnimatedLoader
        visible={visible}
        overlayColor="rgba(255,255,255,0.75)"
        source={require("./loader.json")}
        animationStyle={styles.lottie}
        speed={1}
      >
        <Text>Doing something...</Text>
      </AnimatedLoader>
    );
  }
}

const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  lottie: {
    width: 100,
    height: 100
  }
});

Functional Component

import React, {useState, useEffect} from 'react';
import {StyleSheet, Text} from 'react-native';
import AnimatedLoader from 'react-native-animated-loader';
export default function App() {
  const [visible, setVisible] = useState(false);
  useEffect(() => {
    setInterval(() => {
      setVisible(!visible);
    }, 2000);
  }, []);

  return (
    <AnimatedLoader
      visible={visible}
      overlayColor="rgba(255,255,255,0.75)"
      animationStyle={styles.lottie}
      speed={1}>
      <Text>Doing something...</Text>
    </AnimatedLoader>
  );
}
